Just having metal conduit feeding a junction box does not guarantee that the conduit is a working ground. I have seen many locations garage and basements workshops etc where the metal was used for physical protection with romex run thru it.

It is easy enough to check with a meter to see if the metal box provides a ground path.

Yes, always have to check anything you are working on to see if it was properly installed...
